The Best Pizza in San Francisco

Tony Gemignani knows about pizza. He makes pizza and he teaches others how to create pizza.
I call Tony, the Amabassador of Pizza. He travels the world giving pizza demos. Let's face it, pizza just oozes out of this guy.

He recently opened a new pizzeria / pizza school in San Francisco.And he makes the best pizza in San Francisco. From all of the reports I've seen, it is surpassing all expectations.

According to their website:
A small pizzeria in Naples, Italy is the inspiration behind Tony Gemignani's story for Tony's Pizza Napoletana. A fullfillment in his ever growing passion for pizza drew him to self content when he first tried an authentic Neapolitan pizza.

Since then he was determined to learn this art of pizza making and one day open a restaurant like no other. Growing up, Tony worked by his mother's side, learning valuable skills he would later implement in operating a successful restaurant. Tony learned the creativity involved in preparing hand crafted dishes, only to include the finest ingredients straight from the heart of Italy.

My friend Rick recently visited Tony. Here are some pics:
